Hong Kong – no US Military Visits.Vincent Thian AP

China announced Monday it would bar U.S. planes and ships from visiting Hong Kong, as retaliation for a bill passed by Congress and signed by Donald Trump, sanctioning Chinese and HK officials responsible for human rights abuses, and requiring an annual review of the situation by the U.S. State Department. The Chinese also sanctioned Human Rights Watch and similar nonprofits for telling the truth about China’s brutal crackdown. Last weekend, protesters in Hong Kong hoisted “Swole Trump” images (making him look like a bodybuilder) to thank him, an empty gesture to most Americans whose Congress the bill with a veto-proof majority.
